Recital Pro 88-Key Digital Piano with Hammer-Action Keys Manufacturer: Alesis The Alesis Recital Pro is a full-featured digital piano with 88 full-sized hammer-action keys with adjustable touch response. You can easily customize the voices by combining any two at once in Layer Mode for a full, rich tone by using the intuitive onboard controls and display screen. Voices can also be assigned to only the left or right hands in Split Mode. You can even add adjustable Modulation, Reverb and Chorus to further tailor your sound. With powerful 20-watt built-in speakers and a 128-note maximum note polyphony, Recital Pro delivers ultra-realistic sound with an authentic playing experience.

The Alesis Recital Pro has an incredibly useful feature called “Lesson Mode.” This feature divides the 88 keys into two zones with the same pitch and voice. This enables both the student and teacher to easily watch each other and play together without having to take turns or reach over one another. Recital Pro also features an easy “Record Mode” that enables you to record your playing and then critically listen back to your performance.

The Recital Pro features a 1/4″ (6.35mm) headphone output which mutes the internal speakers for convenient, quiet private practice. In addition to a 1/4″ (6.35mm) sustain pedal input (pedal not included), Recital Pro also features stereo 1.4″ (6.35mm) outputs to connect to a recorder, mixer, amplifier or other sound system. Recital also features a USB-MIDI output for connecting to a computer and using educational software or virtual instrument plugins. Recital Pro can be powered using the included power supply or with 6 D cell batteries (not included).

Includes 3 months of Skoove Premium featuring in-depth online piano courses that adapt to you and give you feedback.

Instructions for composers

Most composers will be able to get started creating and notating music by purchasing the items listed on this page. The picture-links will bring you to an established, reliable retailer that I have had excellent purchasing experiences over the years. If you have questions about the purchases, they have real live human beings who give informed information and help! You may be able to get by without the midi cables, since the USB connection from the Casio Previa should suffice to connect you to your computer.

I recommend using this system with the Musescore notation software, which is a free product and is easily downloaded for either MAC or PC from here.

It is Opensource Professional music notation software. There is never a charge and there are no limitations to the software, meaning you can save your files either to your computer or to a cloud storage. They appreciate contributions.

The digital audio interface enables the musician to convert their musical performance into language that the computer can utilize in order to record it as sound and/or to record the notes into any musical notation program such as Finale or Sibelius, for further arranging, composition and production.

The second generation Scarlett 2i4 is Focusrite's most versatile USB-powered audio interface, ideal for anyone needing a cue mix for performing or recording. 

The Ins and Outs you need 
With Scarlett 2i4 your recordings will sound just how you want them. Two combination inputs with natural-sounding Scarlett mic preamps, line level inputs and newly-designed instrument inputs let you record anything you want. The four analogue outputs and MIDI I/O make the Scarlett 2i4 ideal for the modern music producer using outboard synths or performing live. Use the 1/4 inch balanced jack outputs to connect to professional studio monitors, or the four RCA outputs to connect to a home speaker system or DJ mixer.

MIDI cabling enables the keyboard to send the digital performance information to the interface for translation for the computer. Many modern keyboards (including the Casio Previa piano that is recommended for pianists and students) communicate with a built-in USB connection, using a standard USB cable such as used with many other devices. However, most musicians still keep MIDI cabling in their studios for usage with keyboard and other devices since the MIDI (Musical Instrumental Digital Interface) standard of communication is universally used.

Roland Gold Series MIDI cables are the premium solution for connecting all your MIDI gear. Multi-strand copper wire reliably transmits your data, while high-density spiral shielding eliminates any possible interference and unwanted noise. Incorporating high-quality connectors with gold plated contacts and a heavy-duty woven outer jacket, these professional cables provide ultra-reliable operation and superior performance.

Ideal for recording vocals, close miking instruments, use as a room microphone and more, the MTR101 solidifies Samson’s commitment to offering superior sound and the ability to capture the best audio possible. 

Fully Featured Design 
The MTR101 is a large, 1-inch diaphragm studio condenser microphone. It features a cardioid pickup pattern that provides increased isolation of a sound source and is designed to handle high SPLs of up to 137dB. The MTR101 produces a smooth, extended frequency response, as well as low self-noise and a wide dynamic range perfect for recording. In addition, its internally shock-mounted capsule also reduces handling noise and external vibrations. This rugged die cast microphone comes with a mic clip designed to fit all standard microphone stands. 

Vocals 
The MTR101 is perfect for capturing vocal performances in the studio. The mic’s cardioid pickup pattern provides increased isolation, avoiding unwanted noise and highlighting only the vocalist. As such, the MTR101 is ideal for any vocal performance where excellent rear-rejection is needed or use it as the "Mid" mic in a Mid-Side stereo setup. And with a wide 20Hz–20kHz frequency response, the MTR101 can capture the most dynamic of voices with ease. 

Instruments And More 
Featuring a wide dynamic range and the ability to handle high SPLs, the MTR101 is ideal for use as a room microphone or for close miking a variety of instruments both live and in the studio. From aggressive guitar cabinets and drums to vibrant pianos, winds and other preferred instruments, the MTR101 is designed to faithfully reproduce a diverse range of instrument tones. And the previously mentioned vocal miking techniques can be easily applied to all of these instruments given the situation and desired sound.

You will need a mic boom stand. This will keep the microphone for vocals and instrumentals extended away from the clatter of the keys, and keep it from falling to the floor during rehearsals and performances/recordings. The included cable negates the need to purchase separate mic cabling.
